going back to the Saturday after Pentecost

Luke 24's road to Emmaus and later appearance of Christ makes me wonder what passages He opened up for the disciples in Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms. Recently I heard it suggested that at the very least we should consider the passages that the Apostles apply to Christ - for instance the ones quoted on Pentecost in Acts 2.

This may be a stretch, but how about TDP's reading for Saturday - Reuben and Gad settling in Gilead. Could those tribes be a type of Christ? For He has come to His homeland of Heaven, but does not rest. He goes in front of us (Numbers 32:17) to fight for our promised inheritance.
